We had B422 for our Alaskan cruise 9/2, walked out our door and had the elevators right there. Perfect in every way. This cabin and several on either side were in the area that I refer to as the "bump" area as it seems to jut out from the other balconies.
You could go to www.princess.com, click "Ships", look for yours, then have a look at the deck you are inquiring about. A great site to look at deck plans is www.travelocity.com. Put your cursor on Cruises and select search for cruise lines. Then look for the deck plan of the ship you want. This is a great site, especially when using Netscape, you can see 360 degree views of several areas of the ship. Check it out!!
My wife and daughter plus grandaughter are in B501, and myself and adult son are in B503. If your on the August 15th cruise, that makes us neighbors I would guess! How many in your party and ages? My wife and I are in our late fifties and early sixties. The children are both adults in their early thirties. Our grandaughter is eleven. We have sailed before with my son on the Star Princess. This is my daughter's first trip along with her own daughter. They are both single but my wife and I plan to keep up with their pace during the cruise. We are far from being inactive people, even in our everyday lives. Look forward to meeting you on board, no doubt in the hallway, if not somewhere else on the ship.
I am on the September 18 cruise. My husband is 30 and I am 24. This will be my first cruise, my husbands 2nd. Please let me know how your trip went and how the rooms are .We are very curious as to the 3rd person arrangement in some. It will be just the two of us, but apparently our room can have 3 people in it.
